Jantien is the founder of @The HUB Kampala. She has been traveling around the globe looking for beautiful things in life. After completing her MSc in Management of Agricultural Knowledge and Social Change and working in the field of development for several years in Asia and Africa, she realised that (her own) development needed a different path.
Always on the look for new challenges she started to focus on webdesign and web development and soon found a niece market in Uganda’s dynamic art industry, contributing to projects as http://startjournal.org, and recently, a new crowd funding platform for the arts in East Africa.
Her motto is: “Do what you love doing”. That is pretty much why she came up with the idea to create a collaborative work space. Finding it hard to balance between kids toys & noise and her web business as well as recognizing that there is much more to learn from other people rather than online tutorials, she started to think about co-working. When the perfect space became available and after sharing the idea with others she soon launched her new project, @The HUB Kampala.
